Internet & Networking Now this is a subject sure to cause some discussion among all of you. LifeHacker's Adam Pash is arguing that Chrome has overtaken Firefox as the browser of choice for what he calls 'power users'; polls among LifeHacker's readership indeed seem to confirm just that. He also gives a number of reasons as to why this is the case.

I don't want to switch to Chrome for the exact same reason. I have been using NoScript ever since I was told about it (in my 1st semester of studying IT, which was over 2 years ago) and I don't want to miss it when browsing the web.

I won't go for Chrome for Webkit's sake alone, although I really like its speed.

Are you using NoScript only for security reasons. What about the fact that Chrome's sand-boxing provides an extra layer of security that FF doesn't?

Having the ability to read PDF's and know that they are running in Chrome's sandbox is big for me.

A lot of stuff online malware wants to steal is or might be inside the sandbox itself.

Security is one part of it, the other is that I don't feel the need to run every (Java)script out there, if the script seemingly doesn't have anything to do with displaying the website correctly.
